    Say what? How big are the bottles? 30 liters = 7.9 gallons. I think we have a typo here.

    Giant Loop has a different approach

    I've used Giant Loop's Gas Bag (or, Fuel-safe Bladder) on my Xchallenge, because the bike's fuel tank only holds 2.5 gallons and it's not the easiest bike to carry stuff on.

    The 1-gallon model below fits in one of my tank panniers nicely if you only fill it to about 3/4 gallon. It's rugged as hell, doesn't require any mounts and can be packed at least a dozen different ways. Depending on your bike you may want some of the accessories, such as a filler spout.

    These are now available in several sizes, and Giant Loop stuff is among the best there is. Plus, they are a strong supporter of the GS Giants!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    I would love to get a 1 or 2 gal model for my WR but the prices stops me.

    Primus fuel bottles inside document storage containers

    Plus one other fuel bottle I carried inside side bag. I carried about a gallon extra; mostly I was just having fun figuring out how to carry more gas. I never ran out of gas anyway as my butt always got tired way to soon.
